Abstract
A novel method for fabricating multimode PDMS waveguides is presented. This process is based on a hot-embossing technique and generates high quality optical waveguides without a substantial residual layer after embossing. Furthermore, the process allows for low-cost fabrication since it relies on a replication technique and additionally only commercially available materials are used. The measured propagation loss is smaller than 0.24dB/cm and can be further reduced by improving the master mould quality.
